It’s not news that sexual fluidity has been working its way into the mainstream. We all know the girl who experimented in college and then went back to guys, or the middle-aged woman who left her husband for some turquoise artisan in Taos named Deborah.
Both seem to be examples of the stronger sexual preference winning out in the end. But more and more, it’s becoming acceptable for women to “hop the fence” — that is, to make the occasional gender switch-up in casual sex and in long-term relationships. I know, ’cause I’m one of ‘em. Read more … Keep reading »
According to Us Weekly, Kim Zolciak from “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” has moved on from her relationship with Big Poppa and is now dating DJ Tracy Young — who happens to be female.

A few weeks ago, a man attempted to insult me by telling me I suffer from “lesbian bed death.” Rather than get upset, I just laughed. Hard. The dude about whom we are speaking doesn’t know me. He has no idea if I have a girlfriend or how often I get down. I thought about how amazing and freaky life between the sheets is for me these days. I pictured my girlfriend wearing those thigh-high fishnets that I adore so much, tying my hands together with a black robe. I pictured staying up all night and not getting out of bed until 6 in the evening. Then, what this guy’s face would look like if he knew what I was thinking and I laughed harder than I have in a long time. Keep reading »

Dear men everywhere,
I know in the past we’ve had our fair share of arguments, disagreements and maybe even a few bloody battles. I’ve probably called you all misogynists a few too many times and I know I often say things are easier for you than they are for the ladies. Sorry. I know it isn’t your fault that men tend to make more than women. And you, personally, are not responsible for the obsession with size 0 gals nor is it your fault that we’ve never had a chick president. I’ll admit: I hate on you guys a lot for no reason at all.
But, recently, I’ve come to appreciate you fellas and your trials and tribulations a whole lot more. Now, I know what you’re thinking. You think this is all tongue-in-cheek. You think I’m putting up a front, making fun of you. But seriously, man, I get it now. And what, you ask, has opened my eyes to all your pain and suffering?

OK, these models in Armani Exchange‘s “Share The Love” campaign probably aren’t gay. They are just kissing each other in front of a camera because they’re getting paid thousands of dollars to do so. But that doesn’t make a difference to the angry, angry parent group OneMillionMoms.com, who have issued an “action alert” against these filthy “same-sex couples.” Or, as they prefer to spell it, “same-s*x couples.”
Read all about Armani Exchange’s mind-poisoning ad campaign after the jump … and think of the children! Keep reading »
Gay-bashing can be tough work: just look at the trouble that the Florida Family Policy Council of Orlando, Florida, ran into while protesting a Miami judge’s decision to grant a lesbian couple the right to adopt a 1-year-old boy. Lesbians Vanessa Alenier and Melanie Leon (photo at right) have cared for the boy, the child of one of Alenier’s relatives, since he’d been removed from his birth parents by child welfare. And last month, Miami-Dade Circuit Judge Maria Sampedro-Iglesia ruled that a Florida state law banning the gay couple from adoption the boy was “unconstitutional,” effectively awarding them custody.
Judge Sampedro-Iglesia’s decision did not sit well with the scaremongers — they got right to work lambasting her “arrogant judicial activism” in an email alert. Unfortunately, the lesbian adoptee moms were far too femme, smiley and “straight”-looking to scare the bejeezus out of homophobes. So the FFPC (which is affiliated with Focus on the Family) did some creative illustration and cooked up a faux-lesbian duo of butch women who “look” a lot more like stereotypical lesbians (see photo left) to presumably scare everyone away from gay adoption. Because, you know, butch lesbians can’t be good parents!

I’ve been thinking about writing this essay for a while, but I’ve been putting it off because I feel like a traitor. Since coming out, I’ve struggled with feeling like an outsider in the gay community. Now, I feel totally secure in identifying as a lesbian and when I’m hanging out with a bunch of queer chicks nothing seems amiss. But I can’t help but notice that there are a bunch of things about gay gals that most people don’t know. And, honestly, that’s because we don’t want you to know. They are guarded secrets that we don’t even talk about amongst ourselves. But, lucky for you, I’ve always sucked at keeping secrets. So here goes.
